What We Do

Welcome to Ashes to Glass. We are a family of lampwork artists who have developed a technique for spinning ashes into our glasswork. The idea of combining ashes with molten glass began when our father passed on. Debbe combined her love for lampworking with her love for our dad.

In time she perfected a beautiful glass globe encasing our father's ashes. She made a bead for each family member, and everyone of us felt such comfort when we were presented this precious gift that we could hold in our hands.

 Since then, Ashes to Glass has become a heart-driven business. Seven years and a thousand memorial beads later, we find ourselves as passionate as ever. Located in Santa Cruz, California, Ashes to Glass has served both families and funeral homes from Kaneohe, Hawaii to Bar Harbor, Maine.

Look through our site and learn about our works of art, how lampwork is created, and who we serve. We encourage you to contact us if you have any special requests. We will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Feel free to call us for more information or questions regarding our craft at 888-418-9888, or e-mail us at
